Poor Performance for the Price


I got my OnPar GPS system just prior to the start of the 2010 golf season and couldn’t wait to use it on the course however the disappointments soon followed. The OnPar system became the most expensive paperweight that I have ever owned and here are the reasons why. Prior to buying the system I made sure that my home course was on the list of courses for download and it was however when I got the system and downloaded my home course it was the wrong course, the course I download was located 500 plus miles from where I live. I contacted OnPar and they eventually fixed the problem but not without some effort, they didn’t believe me at first. The courses for this system are done by satellite only and nobody walks the course to improve accuracy. I discovered that most of the holes on the courses I used it on this past season were off in distance form 6 to 20 years consistently. The touch screen worked OK however if you forgot to place the system in standby mode prior to putting in your pocket or carrying case the system would freeze up and you would have too reboot a therefore lose all the information for that round of golf which could include your score, measured distances for drives and clubs, all your other inputs also. The problem was so bad I stopped using it for a score care and the other functions and went back to using a score card. Also the system would only allow you to only score your game and not other members of your foursome. This product also as a short battery life, you have to charge the system after ever second game. In conclusion I retired my OnPar Paperweight midway through the season and now use a scorecard and have returned to finding yardage markers to find my distances which are by far more accurate than the OnPar system. My advice to those that are considering buying this system, please consider your decision carefully if you value your money.

Product Specifications

OnPar is the first GPS touchscreen introduced to the gold market. We took a fresh look at the GPs rangefinders and how technoogy could intuitively create a more accurate and user-friendly device. The device needed to incorporate traditional golf information and unrivaled useful features that actually helped the golfer manage and improve their game. All of this information needed to be easily accessible with a single touch of the screen on an ideal sized display that was easy to read. OnPar, was built on these principles and created to help golfers with distance information and the ability to track and suggest personalized club strategies. The first OnPar Touchscreen GPS was launched to the golf community at the 2009 PGA Merchandise Show with resounding success. In using the most advanced technology, this next generation GPS product has been described as "Your own Personal Caddie." It allows you to View each golf hole; Track every shot; and Know your game better. Hand Held GPS Products have evolved, so will your game. Savant GPS, LLC, is a Houston based Golf Technology Company.
